Eowyn Anne Jameson

Poetry; Winter 2019

Eowyn Anne Jameson, an Elder of the Green Mountain Druid Order since 2009 and Wiccan practitioner of over 25 years, offers her passion as ‘a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves’ in her work with Green Mountain Animal  Defenders and Protect Our Wildlife.  She spends her days as close to Mother Earth as possible on her land in Marshfield, with her two feline companions, Cloud and Onyx.   She writes for pleasure as well as in advocacy for all the sentient children of Gaia.  Her training in herbalism, aromatherapy, Reiki and Animal Reiki, and strong intuitive gifts support her life passion of ‘healing from the heart’: to help others return to the closeness with Nature that has been lost over time, to promote the respect and love that comes from the inherent balance and connection within.

Karii

Poetry; Winter 2019

Born and raised on the West Coast, I moved to Vermont and fell in love with the land and forest I now call home.  Druid by day, bard by night, I can be found by the fire telling stories, singing to the stars or dancing in the moonlight with the trees.  Wont you come and play with me?
